Action Tiles



Quicklaunch Action Tiles allow for quick and secure launching of any application, website, file, or meeting solution from one click of the interface. Quicklaunch's default configuration comes equipped with two action tile groups including Devices and Collaboration which are home to 11 action tiles that can be used to control a majority of the meeting room. With these default tiles you can share an HDMI device with HDMI Share, control the meeting room using QL Remote Control, Meet Now with MS Teams, Zoom and Webex and even launch and email a MS Whiteboard.


How to have the best MS Teams experience

Although these are the defaults, they can be completely customized to assist with any meeting room configuration imaginable. Using Quicklaunch settings, you can setup 3 total action tile groups, then customize all of the tiles, their icons, the colours and their names to fit your meeting room's standards.

System Events/Policies



System Events give users the ability to setup events that occur when other actions take place. For example, when a room reset occurs, Quicklaunch can automatically launch a website, the option to send an email will automatically be prompted when a file appears in a specific folder, or automatically send a warning email when your meeting room PC experiences an issue such as no mouse or keyboard, or internet outages.


Adjusting policies in Quicklaunch is an easy way to lockdown the meeting room PC and disable Windows settings like logging out, accessing the task manager, not caching credentials and much more. If you are planning on rolling out system policies quickly to multiple meeting room PCs, you can utilize the exporting and importing of settings to easily get this done. Ensure to enable the "apply Quicklaunch values to Windows policy values" button so your policies are properly applied.
